Going virtual using a nearly carbon-neutral conference model

Originally taking place on April 3rd, 2020 at Lawrence University, Healthspan 2020 was one of many conferences disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, we re-launched Healthspan 2020 through a virtual medium, following a nearly carbon-neutral conference model. Healthspan 2020 is Lawrence University’s first biotech conference and first virtual conference.

Despite the changes to speaker and event programming instigated by the COVID-19 pandemic, Healthspan 2020 remains dedicated to fulfilling its original aims. Promoting the advancement of rejuvenation biotechnologies which extend healthspan and highlighting the vibrant biohealth industry of Wisconsin.
